Sterling, heavily Oscar-honored biographical drama concerning the life and subsequent martyrdom of 16th-century Chancellor of England, Sir Thomas More (Scofield). Story revolves around his personal conflict when King Henry VIII (Shaw) seeks a divorce from his wife, Catherine of Aragon, so he can wed his mistress, Anne Boleyn--events that ultimately lead the King to bolt from the Pope and declare himself head of the Church of England. Remade for TV in 1988 with Charlton Heston in the lead role.
